It’s been a rough day and a wonderful day.
The Human Condition
I read something so raw and smart and me on VREAA this morning I just had to share.
YVR Analyst wrote in the comments. ” Well I’ve been wrong – lots – but I don’t go around telling everyone about it. It’s common courtesy to keep my success at being wrong to myself, so as not to make others feel inadequate. “
The Scientific Process and Success
In science you have a theory and you try to see if it’s correct. If you are wrong you come up with a new idea and try again. You have to have ideas, love ideas but be unforgiving and cull the ideas that do not work.
Trouble is that it’s hard to tell between an idea that needs more time to bear fruit and an idea that will never bear fruit.
Then there’s the ideas that are pure rot. Like the one that came to the mind of Jared Hope & Patrick Francey & C0 to steal the name of Landlord Rescue. That was bad, but being big important men they ignored me until the Globe & Mail Article about the trademark. So it’s been a bad idea since then and it’s never going to be a good idea.
In any case I do owe Jared and Patrick a debt of gratitude, first they provided me with a valuable opportunity to inform landlords of the dangers of genital warts. I’m not sure that has ever happened before. Second, fuck it, I’m not this gracious the Public Service Announcement will have to do. Next week the joys of genital herpes animation staring Don, Patrick, Jared & the loser of the Bum Fight.
Unhappy Tenants Referred to RECA
Seriously, this is a real email but I doubt anything seriously wrong happened here, there are no specifics and the tenant isn’t even mad.
Still I do want to prevent the scourge of unlicensed property management companies in Alberta…
Have a great night everyone!
